Many thanks to all who make these libraries available.

I found the smart pointer documentation to be very good. Here is some

The scoped_ptr docs under the Handle/Body Idiom says:

"One common usage of shared_pointer ..."

For this section of the documentation, shouldn't 'shared_pointer ' be
'scoped_ptr' ?

The shared_ptr docs under shared_ptr example says:

"Note that at the termination of the creation loop, some of the FooPtr
objects may have use_count()==1 rather than
use_count()==2, since foo_set is a std::set rather than a std::multiset."

This implies that std::set will reject a duplicate key. But, given the
example as written, won't 'new' always produce a unique value - and hence a
unique key? That is, if the set objects are ordered based on the address
of Foo objects, the use_count() will always be 2 at the termination of the
creation loop.

Thanks again.
